Its funny how many people around here have known or had kids who have these or the older generations (which were weird colored foam) and tell you about it and how many people (usually older ladies in the mall) asking what's wrong with your kid.
Too bad we can't put these on adults to reshape their heads (thinking).

Hi All,

Bee reading through these forums/threads for a while now looking for a baby seat for my 997.1 TT Cab. Having read a lot about which seats fit and which don't I settled on the 'official' Porsche one as a lot of people said it was the best fit.

However, I must admit I was not happy when I had installed it. I put it on the rear passenger side seat and fixed it in with the seatbelt as I would have to have had the isofix anchors installed. It was installed correctly, seat belt as tight as it would go and it was very loose. By grabbing it with two hands and shaking it it was moving all over the place. Having read some of the threads people mentioned removing the back seat rest. I did this, also removed the lower back seat rest which is velcroed in and also removed the bottom of the seat. Baby seat back in and it now fits like a glove, so much more stable than with the backrest in place. Still moves if you give it a really good shake but this is the movement in the seatbelt itself because it hasn't locked into place as it would if there was sudden movement of the car.

I took some photos, just trying to work out how to upload them and will get them on as soon as possible.

Default Can you just remove one of the 2 seats?

From your picture it looks like you removed one side but left the other installed. I hope this is possible. Is it?

Cute kids but man....I think you may want to get an Odyssey.

My son just detailed the neighbors car and she has a little baby girl. I cannot even explain to you what that kid did to the carpet and seats. Let's just say we had a little throw-up in our mouth

Yes it's possible. The metal piece that divides the two seats has a small rod that sticks out on either side (and into mounting holes on the seats). The rod will stick out an inch or so on the side which you remove the backrest, but it's not noticeable or dangerous when the baby seat is installed.

That's a good helmet. My friend/neighbor fits those and is a pediatric specialist. He just did a leg brace for a Komodo Dragon at the zoo.
